Simple ways to add last minute fall touches to your home
Our poor house is confused. It can’t decide if it wants to continue celebrating fall or get a head start on Christmas. It reminds me of the weather we’ve been having lately. Totally confusing. We broke a record here yesterday with a high in the mid 80’s. I actually considered wearing a sundress to a dinner we went to! On November 1st! It’s crazy.
Last week I finally added some simple fall decor to our family room mantel. I only used things I had on hand or things from our yard. It didn’t take very long to put it all together so I thought I’d share some simple last minute fall decorating ideas that can be used anywhere. No need to spend hours or lots of money.
6 Quick and Easy Fall Decor Ideas
1. Fall branches
The branches from our dogwood trees have some pretty colors so I clipped a few of them and placed them in some old metal sap buckets.
2. Fall Themed Artwork or Signs
A vintage oil painting with a fall theme takes center stage above the mantel.
3. Old Books
Old books with a soft fall palette add some character to the setting.
4. Acorns & Feathers
Feathers and acorns from the yard add more of a natural element. I wish I could find more of these feathers. They’re so pretty!
And the acorns are the perfect fall decorating item.
A few pieces of driftwood add patina and texture to the mix. And the old worn Arm & Hammer wooden crate is just the right spot to set them.
6. Throw Blankets
